Hey guys, Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a picture with straight line segments. There's a lot of things you can do with straight lines. So, you can, I'm going to show you, maybe a couple things. So, here we go, start with a star. Got one, two lines kind of starting like that. Couple lines going off to the side here, couple lines going down. And, there we go. Once you learn how to kind of connect straight lines and do that, I mean, you can kind of do all kinds of things. You can do a house, got two lines going down here, a line going across the bottom. And kind of make it a box shape, and give it a little triangle on the top. Maybe, you want to add a chimney, and a door, and a window. Or, maybe you want to draw like an octagon or something, you can do that as well, or a hexagon. Go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Then you've got like a basic octagon. You can draw all kinds of shapes, draw some triangles, straight line segments. You want to maybe add some grass or something to your house. You can do that as well, just a couple straight lines. You can also draw a horizon line, with a vantage point, if you'd like. Actually I'm going to kind of erase this, just a little bit. Draw a straight line like that, here's our vantage point, and two lines going down, like this. Maybe, you have some buildings kind of coming up, like that. And, maybe this is a road that somebody is walking down. Of course, you've got to erase these lines here, because the buildings are in front of them. You can give the buildings a window, and doors, all using straight lines, if you want. It's totally up to you, just stay creative and kind of, do your own thing. There you go guys, that's how you draw a picture using straight line segments. So, good luck and stay creative.
